I Am A Quilter (series)

This article appears in the Oct.2009
American Patchwork and Quiting Magazine
Sorry I could not get it to enlarge..(blogspot has it limits)
Here is what it says:

I AM A QUILTER. I am 59 yrs old dedicated Harley rider. I started quilting four years ago, when I was trying to break a 40-year smoking habit. I've made 42 quilts since then. When American Patchwork and Quilting invited readers to make a mini quilt about themselves, I based mine on a MAZE-ment pattern I designed. As I was sewing, I got to thinking that I should have called it Maze of Life. Between the start and the finish, life takes turns you don't know are coming. If someone would have told me a few years ago that I would be designing quilts, I probably would have laughed at them
(just like guys I ride with laugh at me.)

P.S. I haven't smoked since November 5, 2005.

He has designed more than a dozen Biker-Dude patterns, they are available at: lilcountryshoppe.com

That's awesome! I love it when people do the unexpected. It just goes to show that you don't really know a person until you really know them... or "don't judge a book by it's cover". ANd good for him for quitting smoking and finding a hobby he loves.
